A Resurrection Set for Easter

by | Mar 23, 2009 | Easter | 6 comments

A few months ago I received an email from an online friend letting me know about a lovely Resurrection Set that was available at Autom. The set is made from resin and includes a figure of Christ, 6 witnesses, and the tomb. I really wanted to order it, but I just couldn’t justify spending $41.94 (including shipping) for something we didn’t really need…

Well, last week, a friend of mine was over visiting and I mentioned it to her. She had been thinking about purchasing a Resurrection Set that she had seen in the Oriental Trading catalog for less, and when we checked online it was the very same one I had been looking at, AND the price had dropped even more! We combined our orders to get free shipping and only had to spend $17.49 each!!

Anyhow, I just wanted to let you all know, in case you wanted to purchase one for your families. I think it will make a lovely addition to our Easter decorations this year!

    This looks great! I am curious though, can you use the stone to cover the tomb on Good Friday? And can you put Jesus in the tomb? (Or maybe make a Jesus wrapped in burial cloth to put in?) Just curious…I like to have a tomb with the stone in front and guards (some of my son’s action figures) for Good Friday and Holy Saturday. And then on Sunday the stone is rolled away and Jesus is risen. Can you do that with this set?

    Our set hasn’t arrived yet, but I don’t think it will be possible to put Jesus in the tomb. I am planning on setting it up after my children go to bed on Holy Saturday and leaving it displayed through the 50 days of Easter along with our Garden of the Good Shepherd. If you find something like you mentioned, I’d love to see it!

    The set looks great but, is Oriental Trading Co. having a deal for the free shipping? I only saw prices that had a shipping rate to add.
    Thank You!

    Elizabeth ~ It looks like the shipping special has changed since I ordered, but right now there is a special on orders of $49 using code WC97890. I believe this code is valid until April 1st. You could also do a Google search for “Oriental Trading Coupon Code” and you may find others. I hope that helps!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
